Given that this is the second revision of this ref, and how I thought the last one would stick, I can't say for certain that this is the final one...but hopefully it'll be a long time before I feel the need to screw around with it again.

Would've been easier to redraw everything from scratch than fix the anatomical issues, so that's what I did. These aren't 1:1 recreations of the old refs.

So, Durandal. His expanded role in Inmortalitas has evolved in various and interesting ways since I first started re-reading/playing Marathon; for one, he wasn't the reincarnation of an ancient human when I drew his first ref. "Unwitting MIDA pawn" refers to my theory that he was intended to go rampant on the Marathon for the purpose of lowering its defenses for them, but obviously MIDA wasn't expecting the Pfhor.

Always loved Durandal. How snide he was to VIC in the first Marathon, to becoming a beacon of hope in Marathon 2.

His "I've got a shotgun and you don't!" from Marathon was always my fave quote of his (also predated that line from the Japanese Biohazard/Resident Evil opening song).XD

Durandal's definitely a very memorable/entertaining character. ^^

Yeah a shame he was never used in HALO as a nod to the Marathon series. I hope one day Bungie decides to do one more Marathon.

Marathon? Whoa I remember that Doom-like game! Bungie's big hit before Halo existed. Never seen anyone design a Marathon OC till now either.

I'd expect this guy to essentially be like a less-faulty version of the Simulacrums (as in he looks human, but he is smarter and doesn't blurt out random stuff like "FROG BLAST THE VENT CORE.")

Most likely, yeah (should note that Durandal is not my OC, though).

Oh really? Who's OC is he then?

He's a canon character to Bungie's old FPS trilogy, Marathon.

Oh I remember now. It's been a while since I've played Marathon though. So this is what he'd be like if he could interact with the physical world?

Pretty much.
